I was ALMOST as fascinated when I found this on the floor in my house yesterday....
I remember sitting in my mothers bed on my fifth birthday, with my mother showing me how to backstitch. I couldn't quite get it (not surprising, really... I was only five!), and ended up doing two sets of running stitch to fill in the line.
A LOT of time has passed since I was 5, and I've moved house more times than I can count. (This includes four international moves, which required SERIOUS purges of old belongings). I haven't seen this card since I was a child.... and there it was in my hallway!
Methinks it was a passenger in a box of dolls my mother sent home with me recently. Someone must have been foraging through the cupboard (looking for new toys?)..... and HISTORY escaped!
Who'd a thunk it...?
